Willy K expresses the performance style of the 80s golden age of heavy metal, such as picking harmonics and taping, which harmonize with sharp guitar tones with colorful performances on stage, with his own sensibility, and his intense vibrato and lyrical solo performances show that he is not simply a guitarist who strictly devotes himself to techniques.

Willy  K has been influenced by Gary Moore, John Sykes, Van Halen and George Lynch.
